Serials Solutions offers such as tool as part of their services, and Journal
Web Cite was offering a similar tool before they folded over a year ago.
There may be other stand-along tools out there, and depending on your ILS
there may be some such capability within it for overlap comparisons.

Subject: [SERIALST] A & I Database title overlap program?
I am trying to find out if there is a program available that will run a
comparison of titles indexed between two index and abstract databases.
This can be used as a collection development tool. For example, we
would like to know what percentage of overlap occurs between
the Anthropological Index Online and InfoTrac's OneFile.
I realize that other factors need to be considered when camparing
databases of this nature such as how a database is indexed, but for
a rough estimate of overlap it would be nice to have...
Anyone know of a tool that can do this?
